On Wednesday Marilyn Manson's Role In Salem Previewed In New Trailer was a top story. Here is the recap: (Metal Hammer) Marilyn Manson features in a teaser trailer for the third season of Salem. The third season of the supernatural drama series premieres on WGN America on November 2.

The shock rocker plays Thomas Dinley, a "barber and surgeon who is the go-to man in Salem, from a shave and a haircut to being leeched, bled, sliced open or sewn up," according to the show's official character description.

Manson also co-wrote the show's opening theme song Cupid Carries A Gun with composer Tyler Bates. It was lifted from Manson's latest album The Pale Emperor.

Manson says: "My character ends up being something that could be called the devil's advocate or the devil's best friend. He has no moral balance. The place where Dinley operates his business is not dissimilar to my home. I collect a lot of medical devices."

Though series creators Brannon Braga and Adam Simon didn't write Dinley's character with the rockstar in mind, Braga says that Manson "brought the character to life instantly" with his "inherent, exquisite weirdness." Read more and watch the trailer - here.
